The last few weeks of November are a wonderful time for church bazaars. The weather is slightly cooler and the excitement of another Christmas is in the air.
There were so many booths inside that it was necessary to spill over on the church lawn.
Part of the fun of attending a local craft fair, is becoming acquainted with new people and new ideas. Inside, the meeting room was packed with craft booths, displaying a wide variety of the local talents.
These brightly colored handbags caught my eye....

My next stop was to visit with a lady who designs and makes note cards. I was simply fascinated with her techniques. She introduced me to Iris Folding. If you are not familiar with this art of paper folding, check out the link.
On this card, she did the iris folding with fabric.

After talking with her for quite awhile, I bought several cards. I also bought these lovely hand knitted dish cloths that I have already placed in my kitchen.
And, I couldn't resist buying this pillow for my bedroom. An old embroidered dresser scarf has been used to decorate the pillow top.
Of course, no bazaar or craft fair is complete without food, especially brownies.
So I lunched on a home-made chicken salad wrap....
And, a brownie. How could I resist?
The cushion cover is beautiful. I have dishcloths like the ones you bought...I love them.ReplyDelete
I have some vintage pieces similar to this one....I now know how I can re-purpose them...The dishcloths are almost too pretty to use.Delete
So many lovely things. I love the card with the cat and the knitting *smile*.ReplyDelete
Hello Elna....as a cat lover, I knew you would like that particular card!Delete
I would go for the food alone!!ReplyDelete
Hi Linda...after I returned home, I was wishing I had bought several of the brownies...Delete
